Formula One Nationals 21 (17-18 October 2021)

We hosted the Formula One Nationals at the Vaal Dam this weekend. Despite the challenging weather conditions, this successful event was sailed by a very enthusiastic fleet. Some very astute calls by Bridge Officer, Dave Scorey, resulted in close racing and everyone agreed the sailing was tough, but enjoyable.

As always, the onshore hospitality was well received. Well done to all competitors, organisers and guests.

Red Hat Society Luncheon

On Saturday, 8 May 2021, we hosted a number of great events including a Pirate Birthday Party, junior sailing training and the most extravagant of all the activities, a The Red Hat Society Luncheon.

The ladies were welcomed in the morning with a tour of the club, refreshments and a relaxed break on our immaculate foreshore under the willow tree. This was followed by a tour of the Vaal Dam on Pierre’s motorboat after which the ladies were hosted on the top deck at a a spectacularly laid table that gave Sharon, Elizabeth, the ladies and DAC staff an opportunity to show that our club is more than just a bunch of hardened sailors.

A great day was had by all, thanks must go to all for the work put in and also to Victoria Curnow van Rensburg for bringing the Red Hat Ladies to DAC.
